The holidays are a highly traditional time. We return again and again to the customs and rituals that give us a sense of belonging, comfort and happiness. The way we celebrate during this time of year tells us a lot about who we are and where we’ve come from, binding our family together. But one of the great things about this season is how there’s equal emphasis on what we create. The cakes we bake, the stories we share, the presents we wrap, the songs we sing. Central Square Florist sees these months as a time to enjoy some creative projects with friends and family.
So along with the presenting one of our own creations today, we’re going to give you some fun, green-inspired DIY to try. First, our Rustic Winter Arrangement. Take note of how this piece relies on a variety of greens, from fir to succulent, to provide a rustic, woodsy feel to the center of the table. The layers and textures make this feel so rich, and yet it has a lot of simplicity at the same time.
Feeling inspired by all that evergreen? Good. Here are some other ways to use it:
- Tuck or tie a few sprigs into your holiday dinner napkins for a scene-stealing place setting.
- Adorn gifts with greens and holly, securing them with rustic twine, threading or thin ribbon.
- Fill hurricane lamps or other large, clear candle holders with greens that delicately encircle the candles.
- Make sweet, simple ornaments that showcase greenery by getting some clear bulb ornaments, popping the top off and tucking in elements like eucalyptus or pine.
Be creative in how you blend your favorite decor pieces with fresh florals and creative items inspired by them. ‘Tis the season for creativity!
